Funny exchange of the day

Funny exchange of the day

TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley, talking about Celtics guard Rajon Rondo: "Rondo is the engine that stirs the drink.'' To which broadcast partner Kenny Smith said, "You must have had two drinks before you said that.''

Birthdays of the day

Happy birthday wishes go out to a Rays player, as well as a former Rays player. Pitcher James Shields was born 29 years ago today in Newhall, Calif. Meantime, former Rays slugger Aubrey Huff was born 34 years ago today in Marion, Ohio. But the most famous baseball birthday on this day probably belongs to the late legendary Dodgers executive Branch Rickey, born Dec. 20, 1881, in Stockdale, Ohio. Rickey died in 1965.

Rumor of the day

Is there any job opening in the world that hasn't been linked to former Bucs coach Jon Gruden? You get the feeling that if Heidi Klum left Project Runway, Gruden's name would come up as a possible replacement. Anyway, the strongest rumor these days is that the Browns are going to fire coach Eric Mangini and replace him with Gruden. It does make a little sense because Gruden is tight with Browns president Mike Holmgren.
